While the whole concept of this thing, with it basically being an excuse to kill off 15 kid characters they don’t know what to do with, is skeevy as hell, I can’t resist a good Lord Of The Flies homage.

Hey, look, it’s a Mike Deodato cover that doesn’t look like someone airbrushed a PS2 game and handed it to an inker.

Multiple people saw that and didn’t immediately say “No, that’s not acceptable. We should at least have some semblance of standards. Do this over, but less… awful in every respect.” And that’s why the free market is a failed concept.

PUNISHER: WAR ZONE #3 (of 5) GREG RUCKA (w) Carmine Di Giandomenico (a) Cover by MARCO CHECCHETTO • The Punisher vs. Thor. 32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$2.99
This sounds just like that one miniseries where we had a character that nobody had much of an idea what to do with fight the Avengers for a few issues, with no real connection to anything: Avengers: X-Sanction. At least the name’s better.
CAPTAIN MARVEL #8 KELLY SUE DECONNICK (w) • DEXTER SOY (a/C) • DEEP SEA DANGER! • What lurks below the ocean’s surface? And can Captain Marvel stop it before she gets ship-wrecked? • Guest-starring Monica Rambeau! 32 PGS./Rated T+ …$2.99
The blur near the bottom that sort of helps create a focus on the center of the image is a really nice touch.
MARVEL’S IRON MAN 2 ADAPTATION #2 (of 2) CHRIS GAGE & WILL PILGRIM (w) RAMON ROSANOS (a) • The official adaptation of Marvel Studios blockbuster film Iron Man 2 concludes! • H.A.M.M.E.R drones attack the Stark Expo! • With Rhodey under Vankov’s control, will War Machine kill Iron Man before they can stop the drones? • PLUS: What is the Avengers Initiative? 32 PGS./Rated T+ …$2.99
This should not be a thing. We know what the Avengers Initiative is, we’ve seen the movie, it’s like the #3 highest grossing film behind Titanic and Avatar now. Who decided we needed an adaptation of a movie from 2010, just in time for 5 months before the sequel.
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND BLACK WIDOW #640 CULLEN BUNN (w) FRANCESCO FRANCAVILLA (a/c) • FINALE ISSUE! GET READY TO HAVE YOUR FACES PUNCHED CLEAN OFF! • Captain America and Black Widow lead the multiverse’s finest in a final assault on Venemma Multiversal! • Black Widow vs. Black Widow…to the death! • Forget 11…on a scale of 1 to AWESOME this eye-popping, senses-snapping, jaw-dropping final issue goes to 12! 32 PGS./Rated T …$2.99
Whoever’s writing copy for Marvel should stop mainlining Chris Hardwick and energy drinks, because this comes off as less “Enthusiasm about an exciting comic featuring awesome characters with rad-ass art” and more “soulless marketing slime we drizzled over this comic to disguise its lack of substantive content which we’ve tried to compensate for with ‘internet awesome’, whatever we think that is because we’re all 40-plus, balding, impotent, and unloved by anyone, let alone anyone who would bear us children who would allow us to see what is indeed ‘with it’”, and that’s not really something that makes me want to read a comic. I’d say it reminds me of what my dad would think would sell a comic to kids, but my dad’s actually kind of cool.
SPACEKNIGHTS #3 (of 3) JIM STARLIN, CHRIS BATISTA, DAN ABNETT & ANDY LANNING (w) CHRIS BATISTA & MIKE PERKINS (a) Cover by CHRIS BATISTA • This is it!

You can’t convince me those 2 aren’t supposed to be Bendis and Maleev(or Mack).
MARVEL UNIVERSE VS. THE AVENGERS #3 (of 4) JONATHAN MABERRY (w) • LEO FERNANDEZ (a) Cover by AARON KUDER • Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have become the army of Earth’s deadliest villain. • The infection is spreading and it’s time to make the hardest choices in a war of only hard choices. • All hail Emperor Doom! 32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$3.99

Nick Bradshaw has this sort of Art Adams thing going on, but his people come off meatier, and his line comes off harder, sort of like how Chris Burnham is like a more Saturday Morning Cartoon-ish Frank Quitely.
AGE OF APOCALYPSE #10 DAVE LAPHAM (w) • ROBERTO DE LA TORRE (a) Cover by KRIS ANKA • Jean Grey believes she can defeat Weapon Omega… • Weapon Omega knows he can kill Jean Grey… 32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$2.99

I really love this cover. The look on his face, the scraggle of the hair, that tear. It’s just a really good-looking comic cover.

David Lopez is a damn treasure. I love how the roulette wheel evokes the common visual trick of using a series of concentric circles as shorthand for DD’s radar sense, and I just know that DD symbol in the corner will have a companion in the left top corner of the final version.
WOLVERINE MAX #3 JASON STARR (w) CONNOR WILLUMSON AND ROLAND BOSCHI (a) Cover by JOCK • The shocking truth about Mariko revealed! • Wolverine’s memories are getting more vivid…and he’s seeing some familiar faces in unexpected places. • Meanwhile, the police are closing in and Logan is looking more and more like public enemy number one! 32 PGS./Explicit Content …$3.99 THERE IS A STRICT NO OVERPRINT POLICY ON ALL MAX TITLES.
